Whitby – The Jet Town

Welcome to W H I T B Y

The earliest record of a permanent settlement is in 656, when Streonshal, was the place where Oswy, the Christian king of Northumbria, founded the first abbey, under the abbess, Hilda. The Synod of Whitby was held there in 664. In 867, the monastery was destroyed by Viking raiders, and was re-founded in 1078. It was in this period that the town gained its current name, Whitby, (from “white settlement” in Old Norse). In the following centuries Whitby functioned as a fishing settlement until, in the 18th¬†century, it developed as a port and centre for shipbuilding and whaling, trade in locally mined alum and the manufacture of Whitby jet jewellery.

The Happy Feeling

One of my many shots that I feel should be shared to rest of the world too.

 

Where are the rest of the happy buggers in this world .. ??

Take a deep breath

Breathe, inhale, exhale … Repeat….
Do it again even more slower …..
Feel the power of your existence
